Recent research has shown that humans like to help, even before they are old enough to have been taught how to do so. This innate characteristic, found to be present in toddlers as young as 18 months,  distinguishes humans from their supposed closest evolutionary family member, the chimpanzee, which doesn’t demonstrate the same altruistic behavior.

I applaud such revelations and believe that they point to something really important: that when given the proper framework, "language", opportunity and support, human beings naturally gravitate and thrive in an environment that is giving and altruistic. The mastermind concept that I find so awesome, and the way that our groups internalize it, is exactly along these lines. That is when you give a person an opportunity to help another in brainstorming, support, networking and just even by listening, most people will jump and go for it. That is those who are not overcome by their own fears and paradigms! Because as Napoleon Hill once very aptly wrote: "It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed."

The mastermind not only drives and is driven by collective wisdom, but is driven by and for collective humanity.
